About Karen

Hi, we are both long-time animal lovers and have experience with breeds big and small. We have a very sweet and friendly dog named Zoey! She is a beagle mix, which means she loves and gets along with other dogs and people. Our one bedroom apt is located in the middle of manhattan near many dog parks where we will bring your dog for fun and exercise, if approved by you.

We also foster for a rescue organization to help dogs find forever homes. We would love to help you out while you are at work, on a vacation or just need a dog walking break.

This is our dog's second home. She is so happy with Karen and Dave, and always comes home having had a great time. I think she gets more exercise being with Zoey and prefers having another dog to talk to, so is almost depressed once she is home. I recommend DogVacay all the time to people I meet.

I'm sure our dog actually looks forward to us going away so she can stay with Karen, Dave and Zoey. She loves them as much as she loves us, and Karen is so diligent at keeping us in touch when we're away so we don't miss the furry member of our family so much. If there were 10 stars, we would still give them!

Karen was awesome! Responded really fast because I had a last minute trip and needed someone to take care of my Bruno. She was even willing to pick him up because I had to leave straight from work. And she kept me updated with pictures (and he looked like he was having fun). Will definitely book with her again.

Our beloved baby enjoyed another amazing stay with Karen and Dave and we did not feel guilty leaving her knowing she was having more fun without us, having another dog to talk to and play with (her best friend) and her second parents to snuggle up to. She really loves her second family and is always very sad to say goodbye. As ever, Karen was amazing at keeping us up to speed with photos and a video so we could see what fun they were having and not miss her so much.

Another amazing stay for our dog. Depressingly she actually didn't want to leave when we came to collect her; Zoey really is her best friend, and we had a great vacation knowing our baby was having a great time at Karen and Dave's.
Our dog absolutely loves staying with Karen, Dave and Zoey - they are now like a second family to her and we can leave her with them knowing she is having such a great time she won't really miss us at all. If anything, she doesn't want to leave at the end of each stay, which is the sign of a really good vacation after all! We are so grateful to them for providing such a loving alternative home for our beloved pooch. I can't recommend highly enough.

We just moved to the area and I count my lucky stars we found Karen (&Zoey)! Our dog Oscar is an older, more reserved dog, but as soon as he met Zoey, she brought out the puppy spirit in him. He was running and playing with her during our entire meet and greet.She is such a sweet and lovely dog and Oscar could not have had a better weekend with her. The same is true for Karen. She is so kind and wonderful and just loved on Oscar his entire stay. We got so many pictures of Oscar making himself right at home with them. He had a wonderful time and we will 100% be requesting Karen the next time we're out of town!

Karen was completely fantastic - our dog already has many DogVacay stays under her belt (collar?) and we could tell she had such a good time with Karen. She is 6 years old so I was worried she would find being with a young dog tiring for 10 days, but she soon learned to play alongside Zoey and they developed a real friendship. Karen kept us updated with texts and photos so we didn't miss her too much, and I can't wait to take her back there next time we go away (fingers crossed) so they can be reunited. A very big thank you. I should also add that Karen's apartment is gorgeous and spotless.

I only have great compliments to dish out for host Karen J. My dog Dash gave her visit 5 paws (pretty Pawsome considering she only has four). It was my first venture using DogVacay and being a new puppy owner, I was nervous. It was a week-long stay during the holidays, so there was added pressure to find a comfortable, safe place for my pup. Karen, Dave and their dog Zoey created a home-away-from-home for her and kept in close contact, even providing daily photos and messages. I was able to enjoy my holidays knowing Dash was also enjoying her own vacay. It was such a great experience, I am certain Dash was sad to come home on some level. Just exactly the great feeling you want when you have to leave your pet behind. I would highly recommend them as hosts, except when I need to use them again...I don't want them to be all booked up! Thanks again for taking great care of my family member. M and Dash
